When you talk with your friends and neighbors about work they have had done, you will probably discuss the following:
Choose someone you are comfortable with. Speak with past customers and visit the places they have renovated. Trust your instincts. Discover the scope of their services, including any working relationships they have with designers and architects. Will they be comfortable working with a specialist of your own choosing? A written contract is essential. Discuss the details before the project starts. Know what to expect week by week or even daily. Know how it will affect you and your family’s routine. You may consider moving out for a while to lessen the strain. Communicate. Your contractor should provide regular updates. You need to ask questions about the ongoing work and clarify any issues you may have. Carve out time to discuss the plans and progress. Something unexpected will probably crop up during the project. The larger the scale of work planned, the more likely it will be that some snags will be found. It could be in the home structure itself, or something uncontrollable, like the weather. Plan in advance for major purchases like cabinetry or appliances. Shop early in the process. Remember that special orders may take some time. Your renovator should be a valuable asset to you by suggesting specialists or alternatives. Maintain some financial reserves for the unexpected. There may be glitches, or you may decide to upgrade amenities or appliances. Realize there will be mess and confusion. Focus on what is completed and the goal of a refreshed home environment.
